35 Year Old Senior Web Developer/Mgr, USA Citizen Born and Raised
Hi, I'm David! I have 27 years of development experience (I've been programming passionately since 1988!), and I'm here to help your project succeed.
My strongest programming language is PHP, which I have used extensively on numerous large projects in PHP 3, 4, and 5. I am highly proficient in CodeIgniter and Joomla, and other PHP systems such as Zend, NMOX, WordPress and Drupal. I've also worked in J2EE and MEAN Stack environments as a technical lead, project manager, and developer.
I bring a well-rounded set of skills to my work including UI and AJAX technologies such as jQuery, MooTools, and AngularJS, backend technologies such as PHP, Java, Node.js, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB and SOAP/REST services, and extensive Unix Systems, CLI, and multi-stack (LAMP, CGI, MEAN, Java) administration.
In additional to corporate work, I have owned and operated my own web and new media development studio for over 15 years, so be sure to ask me about my real-world experiences when we interview!
My favorite job has been managing the R&D department for a mid-sized company in Mesa, AZ. We got to build a CMS SPA for the company's internal staff, and our team of 8 was stoked about every aspect of our work.
I recently worked full time for one of PCMag.com's top 25 startup companies doing new development including co-authoring their API for 3rd-party developers and writing the manual for supporting those developers code cleanup, as well as debugging and QA for the team.
Prior to that I worked full-time in a salaried position at a Pharmaceutical Web-Based Software Development studio in Research & Development in Orlando, Florida to advance my career after a great year with a great team.
Check out my résumé (available for download at http://davidcanhelp.me/) for more of my rich background.
I have excellent feedback and have provided consistently positive experiences to my clients and employers, both in the business world and on oDesk. We can communicate via oDesk as well as email, Google Talk, Skype, and pre-arranged telephone calls as needed as we get to know one another and during the course of our work together.
I'm available Monday through Friday, and on most Sundays (by special request only), to assist you with your needs.
Let's get started!
